Cool & Bed Hostel is a great hostel in a fairly decent location in Lyon. The hostel itself is a well-organized, well-oiled machine. There is always an employee in the common room working as a receptionist (24 hours a day). This person will help you get a laundry service, a map of Lyon, an easy check-in, and even some dinner reservations if need be.
We stayed in a 16 bed dorm, and it felt like there were only 6 people in the room. The dorms are split into two smaller areas, lessening interruptions from late night airport arrivals or drunken backpackers returning from their pub crawls.
The bathrooms were cleaned daily, so they were never an issue. Try to get the handicap shower room! It's a much larger open shower in a separate room.
Besides all of the bare necessities, this hostel makes your life easy with weekly pub crawls, free wifi, free locker use, and free computer use in the common room. Cool & Bed also makes it easy to make new friends from all over the world.
So if you're backpacking through Lyon, or just looking to cut cost, stay at Cool & Bed!
